More of the Same... Orioles Waste Matusz's Outing and Lose to Mets, 3-1

On Saturday night, the Orioles lost for the 45th time in 2010 as they lost to the New York Mets, 3-1.

The Orioles once again could not get their offense going – again – despite seven hits on the night. They also could not give any support to Brian Matusz, who took the loss and went eight innings in the outing. He would allow three earned runs, strike out four and walk none.

Baltimore could not get past New York starting pitcher Hisanori Takahashi. Well, it would not be due to Takahashi being that much superior to Matusz – it was the fact the Orioles once again could not score with runners in scoring position. The Orioles seemingly had runners on the base most of the game, but could do much more than that.

They were only 1-for-10 in those situations and that perhaps cost the Orioles more than anything.

The Mets took an early 1-0 lead in the first inning off a Jose Reyes leadoff homer; however, the Orioles struck back in the bottom of the inning as Nick Markakis plated in Corey Patterson with a ground-rule RBI-double.
